Combo List

  • Damage values listed for combos with interchangeable combo parts assume the highest damage variation unless otherwise stated.
cS starter
Combo Position Damage Tension Gain Works on: Difficulty Notes
c.S > f.S > 3H Anywhere 79 Everyone Very Easy 2 Summons or 1 Summon and 1 Organ after knockdown.
c.S > 2H(7) > 214S > 66 j.K > j.S > DJC > j.S j.H > j.4D midscreen 208 Everyone Easy
c.S > 6P > 6H(1) > IAD > j.S > j.H > j.4D midscreen 152 Everyone Medium

6P is an anti-air in the vein of Sol's 6P. It's more of a counterpoke tool, but it's good to know some corner combos for her.

6P starter
Combo Position Damage Tension Gain Works on: Difficulty Notes
CH 6P > 6H(2) > 22P/K/S/H Midscreen 96 Everyone Easy A combo that serves to safely set up a Ghost or deploy an organ.
6P > c.S (JI) > 6H(2) > hj.K > jc j.S > djc j.S > j.214S > dash j.K > j.S > djc j.S > j.H(2) > j.4D Corner 207 Everyone except Slayer Medium
6P > 6H(2) > jc j.S > djc j.S > j.H(2) > j.4D Corner 183 Everyone Very Easy Learn this one.
6P > 6H(1) > jc j.S > djc j.S > j.H(2) > j.4D Midscreen 140 (?) Everyone except Slayer Easy

2S is a notable anti-air.

2S starter
Combo Position Damage Tension Gain Works on: Difficulty Notes
AA CH 2S > (jc, land OR dash) c.S > 6H(1) > jc j.S > djc j.S > j.H(2) > j.4D Midscreen 153 Everyone Easy Important anti-air combo. Because of the direction that CH 2S sends, you can do a full jump cancel and land as a hitconfirm.
AA 2S > jc > j.S > djc j.S > j.H(2) > j.4D Midscreen 135 Everyone Very Easy Important anti-air combo, this time without the counter hit.

6D isn't a move you'll be hitting without Servants a lot, but learning to connect it into your air combo can be useful.

6D starter

6D > dash > c.S > jc j.S > djc j.S > j.H(2) > j.4D Corner 150 Everyone Medium Link is particularly tight on I-No and Raven

Combo Theory

(Note: The following listings may differ depending on an opponent’s wakeup timing)

Common Enders:

   3H – 1 Summon/Organ and a grounded meaty
   2H – 2 Summon/Organ and a grounded meaty
   Low to ground 4D – 1 Summon/Organ and grounded meaty
   High in the air 4D – 2 Summon/Organ or 1 and a grounded meaty

General combo theory:

You'll do a lot of staggering with things like 2K > f.S > 3H, and luckily, that all happens to combo on hit.

Jack-O' wants to end her combos on the ground in 2H or 3H. You can connect into 3H with f.S at MOST ranges.

You want to spend a lot of your time spacing out your 3H so that it combos out of f.S if it hits.

In the air, her combo is j.S > djc j.S > j.H (2) > j.4D. There's very few exceptions to this. You can combo into this from 6P > 6H (1) midscreen, 2S as an anti-air or counterhit anywhere, 6P > 6H (2) in the corner, as an air to air, 214S (Calvados), CH 6H (2nd hit only and also a high connect, on a low connect you can get j.S > j.H (2) > j.4D).

2K combos into itself on counter hit. 2K is a useful move for staggering and frametrapping.

Once you've got a ton of minions on the screen and they're all hitting away, usually the only way to do a stable combo is to mash a lot of 5P, try to get a 3H in so that the opponent is launched, then keep mashing 5P. Eventually, if you manage to connect in a j.S or j.H, you should be able to hit a j.4D to throw them away from you.
